Re: Free Money Management Advice.

I am wondering if paying off a mortgage is a good idea with interet rates still being quite low, especially if you have other debts and if you dont just remortgage and invest. I have witness someone making a significant profit selling a house, mostly due to the market price increasing, and put all t...

I really like the setup, use it in a fairly noisy airplane, the anr is great the headset is light and comfortable. Best part is without the mic assembly you use it as regular headset, very good sound quality ...

Re: Knee surgery and flying

I Have rebuilt acl’s in both knees, I would say 6 to 8 weeks off work sounds right. First couple weeks are hard but then it gets better...but even if you feel good it may take 4-6 months before you get a stable knee so before that time you want to be extra careful not to tear that weak new acl.

Of course, coming on with an ATPL thanks to my instructor years makes it a lot easier for those contract requirements. Where's the 1500...

Re: New instrument rating flight test guide

I am might be wrong but according to the new FTG you could use an LPV to show off your ILS skills! So on an initial you could do a non presicion app and a lpv. What realy bugs me is the need of a aproved gps equiped ac for the test.

Re: Air service without an AOC

FTUs don't need an AOC but they do need an FTUOC. Funny thing is that if a FTU has a AOC, be it 702 or 703, they cannot do sightseeing under the FTUOC. So FTU having only 702 CANNOT do sightseeing and if 703 is held sightseeing is done under 703. 700.02 (1) No person shall operate an air transport ...

Ville Marie circuit, get familiar with entry and exit points, you can only use those to get in or out. Usually done at 2000 asl but you could get higher if TML is not too busy.

Re: sightseeing under 703

Thanks for the ref, but for the longest time, TC would not enforce it and let us do sightseeing on the FTU OC. It changed a few months back while getting audited.
I would like to know if it is only enforced locally or if TC is cracking down on FTUs all over Canada.

Just a quick question, here in quebec, TC is having flight schools that also have a 702 OC do sightseeing flights under 702 instead of the 400. So extra training and company exams required for the flight crew. The change was announced in a letter from TC. Is this change also affecting the rest of Ca...
